How do you take a discount off of a price of an item

Report as

If something costs $1.00 and is 10% off you just move the decimal point over, so it would be .10, or 10 cents off. Therefore it costs 90 cents on sale. Ask your math teacher to help you figure this out, it becomes quite easy after you understand the mathematical principles involved.

Discounts are often calculated using percentage. For instance, if there is a 5% discount, that means you are paying 95% (100% minus 5%) of the original price. By the same principle, when there is a 50% off, you are paying half of the original price.

My quick trick is to figure what 10% is and then I can usually figure the amount off pretty easy. Example a blouse for $30. Ten percent is $3.00 and 3.00 x 3 is $9. So $30-$9=$21

Subtract the per cent of discount from 100 per cent and multiply that by original price.
